Fulcrum Arts produces the A×S Festival, a citywide celebration of art and science. While often described as occupying opposite ends of a spectrum, art and science are instead united in the recognition that both domains are powerful engines of contemporary culture. The A×S Festival embodies the integration of intuition and reason as well as emotion and intellect, and the fusion of creativity and technique and further commemorates, in Pasadena, a textured conversation between the sciences and the humanities that has long been emblematic of the city’s history, and is equally fused with its future.
